The Yacht Club
Joseph Conway – Age 45
In his early twenties, Joseph built the Miami biotech startup, Revenant. He quickly took the company public and became one of the world’s youngest billionaires. During a guest lecture at the University of Miami, he became enamored with student attendee, Betsy Dee. The two quickly hit it off, had a whirlwind engagement, and were married.
Five years into their marriage, Joseph made the decision to shun the Miami highlife and moved to Portstown. While outsiders view him as a recluse, Joseph is intimately involved in town politics, pulling the strings and using his fortune to gain influence.
His relationship with Betsy fractured after the move to Portstown and he became an overt philanderer. His latest fling is with Karey Z. Enos, an ER nurse at Portstown General.
Betsy Conway – Age 43
Betsy grew up in Portstown in a middle class family. She had always intended to stay in town and marry her high-school sweetheart, Rock Breslin after graduation. However, plans changed when she was offered a cheerleading scholarship to the University of Miami. She eventually caught the eye of billionaire entrepreneur Joseph Conway, whom she married.
Her life as a Miami socialite came to a crashing halt when Joseph inexplicably decided to relocate to his wife’s former hometown. Betsy resented the decision and their relationship grew cold. In addition to overtly disdaining Portstown and its citizens, she secretly hates Joseph, who she knows is unfaithful to her. After her parents died in a car accident, Betsy’s only close connection in town is her best friend, Franny Praker.
Harry Cooper – Age 43
A life-long native of Portstown, Harry has led a quiet and uneventful life. He struggled with dyslexia in elementary school and was labeled as “slow”. In high school, his awkward demeanor made him an outsider with few friends. He held a giant crush on Betsy Conway, but was too scared to make an advance, which would have almost certainly been rebutted.
After dropping out of school his senior year, he took a job tending the boats at the yacht club. He moved out of his mother’s house and now lives alone. Since Betsy returned to town, he steals a glance every now and then when she’s at the club, imagining what might have been if he was another person in another life.
